Feedback form is now closed.
We will use hands on activities from the Perimeter Institute to explore the Event Horizon Telescope, a new telescope that is aiming to image the event horizon of the supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy. We will also share activities that allow students to explore the optics involved with the detection of gravitational waves. These materials can be used in physics 20/30 classes, they could be used (with some adaption they could be used in Science 9 or some math courses).
